Spring: Yet Another Post about Statues

Spring BVM StatueLook at that grass! It may not look especially nice to you, but to me it means spring. The grass is not especially green and there are still patches of snow piles around, but I knew that it was spring once there was no snow in front of the statue of the Blessed Mother. Most every Catholic church that I have been to has a statue of Mary outside. They are sometimes hidden around back, or even in the woods, but they are almost always there.

I like to stop in front of the statue to pray a few quick prayers after Mass. Each winter I have to stand back further because of the snow in front of the statue. And I know that it is really spring when I can once again walk near the statue to pray.

Do you have any personal religious rituals which end up marking the seasons for you?

    In Houston, we don’t have what other people would call “seasons.” But there ARE a few months when wearing sandals to church (or anywhere) isn’t advisable, and I love my strappy sandals! I’m happy to report that I am once again wearing them. :)
